Increased security for Christiana

CCTV cameras to be installed in Manchester town

Mandeville, Manchester — Christiana, the main town in northern Manchester is planning to secure a closed-circuit television (CCTV) system to assist with crime fighting.

Inspector Lloyd Darby, who heads the Christiana police division, recently told members of the Chudleigh Path a Jamaica Agricultural Society (JAS) group just outside Christiana that the “Christiana Business Watch’ which is powered by the Christiana Citizens’ Association, are embarking on a project to put CCTV cameras throughout the town”.

According to Darby, the surveillance camera system will allow the town to be “better managed in terms of public order”. Additionally, he said, increased security systems in Christiana will ensure the police can spend more time in outlying farming areas, such as Chudleigh Path. Darby updated his audience on efforts to bring greater order to Christiana by formalising transport and vending operations. He urged members of the Chudleigh Path JAS group, described as the most successful in Manchester, to help in organising similar associations in neighbouring communities. Emphasis should be placed on getting youth involved in positive intiatives, Darby told the farming group which was hosting an awards ceremony for six people, including Finance minister and member of parliament for Manchester North Eastern, Audley Shaw. Those honoured were being recognised for their contributions to community and the farming group. “The young people need our guidance, we need to get them into the fold,” he said. He also renewed calls for residents to assist the police by providing information about strangers and unusual activities in their midst. Such support had made it possible for his team to make arrests of wanted men who had taken refuge in outlying, deep-rural areas of Christiana, he said. Darby said that in the ongoing battle against praedial larceny, residents should report even those incidents of theft that may seem insignificant. “It may just be a bunch of bananas but who knows what else (the culprit) may have done?” Darby asked. Farmers should report incidents of theft even if there is no chance of recovering stolen goods, because the information will help the police to catch criminals, he said. Shaw and several other speakers also addressed the Chudleigh Path JAS group. Those honoured during the awards ceremony were Angela Tomlin, Nichola Robinson, Stephanie Hart, Glenroy Griffiths, Errol Myrie as well as Shaw.
